Clambakes and Barbecues

Clambakes and Barbecues on the North Fork A seaside clambake or a barbecue with a farmview is a popular way to enjoy the fresh bounty from the local waters and the fields of Long Island's East End. The casual relaxed atmosphere lends itself to the many pre-wedding gatherings you may be planning, from the engagement party or couples shower, to even the rehearsal dinner. And yes, for those who are looking to keep the main wedding reception low-key and relaxed, a pig roast, or lobster grill would fit the bill nicely. Many local caterers offer clambakes or barbecues, but only some specialize in them. North Fork Weddings's screened and approved favorites are included here.

For a catering menu that is different from the rest, call The Hellenic and enjoy Greek cuisine impeccably prepared to fit any occasion and any size, from an intimate celebration at home to a vineyard wedding or tented soiree anywhere on the North Fork.

What started 40 years ago as the humble Hellenic Snack Bar is now a full blown 250 seat indoor and outdoor restaurant that offers on-premise and off-premise catering specializing in weddings and vineyard events in addition to being a preferred vendor at beautiful venues such as Brecknock Hall.

The Hellenic’s menu offers local favorites along with their own Greek specialties. Consider a barbecue with a pig roast or whole lamb rotisserie. How about a raw bar of fresh local seafood? Actually, these just scratch the surface. Bring a list of your favorite dishes, and The Hellenic will incorporate them into a banquet that everyone will rave over. And, you won’t want to miss the gorgeous custom platters that will whet everyone’s appetite.

While The Hellenic receives high praise for their large catered receptions and events, they also shine when called on for the smaller, intimate affairs, too. Their gorgeous, and delicious, ornamental custom platters are divine, and the heated and nicely appointed indoor pavilion is ideal year-round for bridal showers, christenings, and rehearsal dinners. In fact, the popularity of their rehearsal dinners inspired the off-premise catering service.

If you thought The Hellenic only offered delicious gyros and fabulous lemonade, it’s time to take another look. Their catering menu will amaze you. Contact them today to schedule a tasting.
